Business challenge story

Seeking scalable, global cloud infrastructure

For today’s cloud-based service providers, performance is critical. Businesses offering popular file sharing, streaming media, ad serving and gaming applications need to provide an exceptional experience for a vast number of users, but standard internet routing protocols often aren’t up to the task. To help companies address the challenge, Teridion wanted to create a networking overlay designed to optimize internet routing and accelerate throughput.

Teridion sought reliable, high-performance cloud hosting technology to launch its innovative solution. Envisioning a comprehensive global network, the organization needed data center coverage worldwide. And to keep up with customer demand, Teridion required easily scalable infrastructure.

IBM Cloud offered us a global resource with high performance capabilities that we are able to manage for our customers.

Transformation story

Tapping in to IBM Cloud data centers worldwide

Based on the IBM Cloud platform’s global data center presence, performance and customization capabilities, Teridion chose IBM Cloud technology to help create its dynamic network overlay.

The Teridion Global Cloud Network (GCN) includes thousands of virtual routers running on hybrid cloud infrastructure in 28 IBM Cloud data centers worldwide. The first-of-a-kind solution works much like an advanced self-driving navigation system, not only determining the optimal route for internet traffic from Point A to Point B but also performing rerouting in real time as needed.

“Think of this as a palette or toolbox of data centers,” said Teridion chief marketing officer David Ginsburg. “We can use any or all of them, depending on customer traffic and Internet congestion.”

With usage-based pricing for IBM Cloud resources, Teridion offers a highly competitive price point to GCN users. And with the flexible hosting infrastructure, the business easily scales across multiple locations based on demand.
